It was easy to call it a different name than what it was – FEAR. I’m a Christian, we’re not supposed to fear anything but God.  Unfortunately that’s not true.  There are a lot of Christians dealing with fear; some are probably calling it everything
Yesterday was National Book Lovers Day.  If you know me, you know I love me some books. On my FB profile I asked my FB family to share what book series they hated to see end. I’m going to share a few books here. The Little House On The Prairie Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  This was my first book series. Anne Of Green Gables series by LM Montgomery The Hideaway series by Rochelle Alers
Today I celebrate one year as a published author and as a book publisher.  I want to share a few lessons I learned on the way. Everybody Is Not Your Reader – I teach this to my promotion clients, and I’m so glad I constantly reminded myself of this lesson daily. You want everybody to buy your book but everybody is not going to buy your book.  Especially those you supported in the past.  Just
If you know me, you know I love a good group.  I even host a few groups myself.  I’ve made some amazing connections from the groups I’m in and I’ve met many clients from these groups.  For the next few Thursdays, I will be sharing some of my favorite groups with you. My advice is to check them out.  See if they are a good fit for you, and then participate. Groups are about participating,

The I’m gonna bug has hit me this week.  I’m gonna write, but it hasn’t happen. I’ve been working on the Produce*Publish*Promotion summit so that has my brain clogged.  I found my research I did for the story, so I’m hoping that will help with creating new scenes. Next week is vacation time.  I’m doing a staycation but I’m also going to turn it to a mini writer retreat because my mind has been on

I received the dreaded revision letter. I put off reading it for a few days. My editor sent me an email asking was I Ok. I laughed because I hadn’t read it so I didn’t know if I was OK or not. I printed the letter out and read what she had to say. Yes the manuscript needed a lot of work. I must confess this was draft 2 of the book, so it was
I told you all my exciting news of being picked up by Brown Girls Publishing.  Now I have to share my sad/exciting news.  There were a few changes with Brown Girls Publishing and I’ve decided to publish my own book.  Yes I’m a little sad to not work with a publisher, but very excited to try my hand at publishing fiction. My book is currently with an editor and she informed me she would be
It hit me the other day that I’m a published author because of my mother’s death. I asked myself would I have walked past my fears if she were alive and I had to answer no.
